IZOD presents 100 years of Indy 500 fashion
In the city that doesn't sleep, teams of workers converged on Broadway and West 34th Street in the wee hours of May 9 to begin transformation of the display windows of Macy's flagship store into a celebration of the 100th anniversary Indianapolis 500.
Iconic cars and other items of the '500' were moved into position in the display windows and inside the mammoth store at Herald Square in New York for "IZOD presents 100 years of Indianapolis 500 fashion."
The display officially kicks off May 11 with a 6 p.m. (ET) driver meet and greet at the store. At the store will be:
• Four-time Indy 500 winner Rick Mears
